A Little MAD....

Hey hey, it's a beautiful day here at the QKD office. The sun is out and it's actually warm. I'm so glad that the new Alice in Wonderland inspired stamps are out now! Because that means I can show you what I've been working on. :)

This is a card that I made using the Mad Hatter from the new Wonderland Friends stamp set. I know the colors are not your usual color combo but I think it works. Strange yes, but who said the Mad Hatter wasn't a bit MAD?? :)

I used the Ace card from the new Fairy Queen Of Hearts stamp set at QKD to random stamp the black cardstock on this card. I stamped it with come Champagne Versamark ink.

*Side note: I have been wanting the new sparkley versamark for some time and I finally bought 2 pads. The champagne and the frost. I'm not even going to open the Frost. It's going back to the store. :( I'm not sure why I got so hyped up about it.. the look is just like regular VM ink only a tad of sparkle... which rubs off as the ink dries.

Next I layered some Jenni Bowlin patterned paper onto some creamy/yellowy Bazzill cardstock and embosses it with my new Moroccan screen cuttlebug folder and inked it all up with my new Barn Door Tim Holtz distress ink pad and foam applicator.

I stamped and colored the Mad Hatter on my trusty watercolor paper, inked the edges with the new light blue distress ink.. the formal name escapes me at the moment.. I added 3 brads and matted it to some aqua colored cardstock. Added a ribbon to the red piece and layered it all on my card base.

Then I pulled out the trusty, handy dandy clear glossy accents and applied it to the glasses, tea pot, tea cup and shoes. I added some red glitter glue to his feather and viola! card done.

If you'd like a chance to win this stamp set, come over and enter the card contest that Queen Kat Designs has going on right now.

Happy Stampin!
